Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo out, Eric Bledsoe doubtful vs. Nuggets
Milwaukee says Bledsoe is doubtful to play versus the Nuggets. The Bucks played against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday and lost. If Milwaukee loses to Denver, it will be the Bucks’ first three-game losing streak in forever:
Eric Bledsoe (knee) is doubtful for Milwaukee tonight. Giannis, George Hill are also out.

Milwaukee is 53-11 on the season. They lost to the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday at Staples Center. Giannis hurt his knee in that game, but stayed in the game.
An MRI showed Giannis has a minor joint capsule sprain of his left knee. The reigning MVP is averaging 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists on the season.
Bledsoe has appeared in 56 games for the Bucks this season. He’s putting up 15.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 5.4 assists and shooting 48.2 percent from the field, 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 81.3 percent from the free-throw line.
The Nuggets are one of the best teams in the NBA, so the Bucks are going to have a hard time defeating them without Giannis and maybe Bledsoe.
